Called to Mission

Welcome to Maryknoll Lay Missioners and thank you for visiting our site! As members of the global Catholic Church, we believe that we are each called to to mission through Baptism. That call may take hold in different ways; we may choose to offer prayers, give financial support or serve in mission. We hope that by learning more about MKLM’s ministries, you also enhance your own perspective on mission.
